Fire From Heaven Poem by Naeem Rahman


And to realize the fire
arose from the unbroken icy water.

I raised there watching
as shawl moves by the breeze, blowing.

The heat warmed the skin
and the breathing flesh frozen within.

The skeleton dissolved away.
Tried! But couldn't make them stay.

Drops of flame are infinitely above
by the inflamed rosy sky of burning love.

Thus surrounds me, the annihilation
of our world's very deception.

I sensed the storm of harmony
an inhabitant lacking all curiosity.

    A curious writing this is with some very interesting, lines. I find the diction to be quite poetic, and I like that you divided this into stanzas not just one long one.

    In the whole you did well with this try.

    Take care now! (Report) Reply

    Sweet, man. This could make an awesome song, with an apocalyptic music video to match. Cudos. (Report) Reply
